Biography

A man with x-ray vision, Nick Veasey creates art that shows what it is really like inside.

Veasey’s works are a classic example of the fusion between art and science. The results transcend classification as photographs, having the gravitas to motivate science institutions and art galleries to acquire the artworks. The Victoria and Albert Museum in London have recently added his work to the British National Collection of Photography. Nick regularly exhibits at fine art galleries the world over.

In today’s world that is obsessed with ‘image’, superficiality and artifice, Veasey counters such insubstantial diversions by delving inside and discovering what things are really made of. Metaphors for the images are many and varied. Their context is very relevant in today’s society with the prevalence of surveillance and the use of x-ray technology for security.

The artist’s work can be seen as a project that harnesses and exploits modern technology to advance the boundaries of perception and of art. But what sets him apart from other artists is not only the technique. Instead of creating or transforming things, he is exposing something that always existed, objects we think we know but we don’t.

Creating art with radiation is complex and dangerous but the results continually inspire Nick to keep experimenting. The subjects of his attention are manifold. Flora and fauna, a teddy bear, ordinary objects such as shoes, an icecream cone and even a classic Morris Mini. Mainly, whatever surrounds us and is tangible.

Nick Veasey (b. 1962) lives and works in London, UK.
